Name: Roberta Walker
Date of Sighting: 1979
Location of Sighting: At Morenci Copper Mne
Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): We saw an unidentifiable air craft it went straight up and down then there would be times it seemed to disappear or have no lights on until it popped back into view. There were about 7 or 8 of us who were watching it.
Then it goes from across the way on the top of the mountain ranges, then it flies over much closer to where we were standing at the top of this open pit mine. Not right next to us but over the mountain real closer to where we were. We could hear a hum from it in the air when it was close.
Then we watch the aircraft go across the sky as far as our eyes could see faster than any aircraft any of us had ever seen until it wasn’t visible. Where the craft had looked like single lights, as it past above us in the sky then we saw multiple lights and no one could quite tell what the actual shape was.
Distance of UFO(s) in sky: While at top of mine we first saw it hovering without moving over a mountain across from Morenci mine, then it moved to closer mountains that were behind us.
Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Stayed within our view for 30 to 45 minutes we could only hear the hum when it was much nearer to us at the top of the Mine. It flew across the sky away from the Morenci copper mine then came back and remained there until we left and drove away I watched it out the back window of the car still hovering over the mountain closer to the mine.
urther Description of Sighting: All present tried to figure out what it could be seeing how it appeared to stop and stay stationary, then hyper speed fly across the sky, then come over nearer us and hover. I’ve never forgotten it. We were visiting our friend in Clifton, AZ and us two visiting from California were driven there to check out the open pit mine. Large trucks were so deep in the mine that they looked small from way up top.
